First house winner emerges in Globacom’s Festival of Joy promo

The first house winner in Globacom’s Festival of Joy promotion has
emerged. He is 19-year-old Ibrahim Akindele, a 200-level student of
Science Laboratory at Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State.

At a presentation ceremony held by the company on Wednesday, November
16, Akindele was given the keys to a three-bedroom house by the Speaker
of Oyo State House of Assembly, Mr Debo Ogundoyin, who was accompanied
to the event by other key members of the parliament, and Globacom’s Head
of Operations in the West Territory, Mr. Akeem Yusuf.

The student who was dazed by his new status as a landlord expressed
gratitude to the digital services provider for making him an overnight
landlord at his young age. “My first reaction when I was called and told
about the good news was doubt. I was in disbelief, I thought it was just
someone playing pranks. I am short of words to convey my appreciation to
Glo for what they have done for me today. I am still a student, but
already Glo has made me a landlord”.

Equally overjoyed was his 54-year-old mother, Mrs. Funmilayo Akindele.
“We are grateful to Globacom for this wonderful gesture. The house will
be a place of refuge for Ibrahim and his older brother while we will be
coming to spend weekends with them”.

In his remarks at the event, Mr. Yusuf noted that the promo was another
opportunity for the company to reward its subscribers with amazing
prizes in line with its commitment to the continued empowerment of its

“Our commitment to the total well-being of our subscribers and the
realization that shelter is one of the key needs of man have fuelled our
desire to help some of them have houses of their own through this promo.
This kind of prize is unprecedented as no brand has ever offered or
presented such to their customers before”, he stated.

Ibadan will be hosting another prize presentation on Thursday, November
17, where lucky winners will go home with prizes including a brand new
Kia car, power generators, sewing machines, rechargeable fans among
other prizes.
